In the NFL, after being trounced by the Packers on Monday Night Football last week, the Houston Texans were looking for redemption.  Their chance would be against a banged up Baltimore Ravens team.  From the get go, the Texans offense was firing on all cylinders.  The Ravens couldn’t do anything against them, as the Texans did their best to pronounce that despite their lashing last week, they are still the team to beat in the AFC.  Houston 43, Baltimore 13.

And in Tampa Bay, it was two teams that are desperately trying to turn their seasons around:  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New Orleans Saints.  The Saints started the season 0-4, primarily because they lost their head coach on account of the suspension of the bounties placed on injuring other team’s offensive players.  The Saints haven’t found their footing this season, but… they still have Drew Brees, and despite his hold out this off-season, he doesn’t appear to be missing any steps.  Almost instantly, Drew Brees had 4 touchdown passes.  They looked like the explosive Saints offense we’re accustomed to seeing year in and year out.  The Buccaneers got an awesome day from Josh Freeman with 420 yards and 3 touchdowns of his own, but in the end the Saints took the win.  They’re now 2-4, and will get Denver next Sunday night.  New Orleans 35, Tampa Bay 28.


You can simply never say “It’s over”.  The St. Louis Cardinals took a 3-1 lead in the series, and everybody pretty much wrote the San Francisco  Giants off for dead.  But, baseball is game-by-game.  Win and you survive, and you never know what can happen in one game.  Sunday, was Game 6, with the Cards up 3-2 in the series, but the Giants bats are red hot right now.  And when a team has their backs against the wall, they don’t go down easy.   In just two innings they had 5 runs, and the Cardinals would play the rest of the game trying to play catch up.  But it wouldn’t be easy, as San Francisco’s Ryan Vogelsong had a career-high 9 strikeouts.  Wow!  The Giants hung on to take the game, giving us an incredibly exciting Game 7 Monday night!  And you will be able to see it after the presidential debate!  San Francisco 6, St. Louis 1.
